PHAUS Webinar:

Flowing Toward Zero Includes Efficient Domestic Hot Water Delivery

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET


Presenters: Karla Butterfield & Dylan Martello, Steven Winter Associates



Water Heating is one of the largest residential energy uses; the US Energy Information Administration states DHW is the 3rd largest energy use, approximately 19%, in an average multifamily building. In Passive House Buildings the DHW becomes an even bigger piece of the pie, often up to 25% of the annual energy use when the other building components become so efficient. Efficient hot water distribution is an important part of high performing buildings. And supporting multifamily projects with PHIUS+ certification is challenging given hot water distribution challenges for central recirculation systems. This webinar will focus on the opportunities for domestic hot water design optimization with a particular attention to multifamily buildings.

Karla is a Sustainability Director at SWA, working with residential buildings. Her expertise is in sustainable consulting services, program certification support and implementation of high performance building technologies. With architects, developers, builders, and homeowners, she develops specific sustainability strategies for both new construction and renovations.

Dylan is a Senior Building Systems Consultant and Certified Passive House Designer with Steven Winter Associates, Inc., specializing in Passive House consulting and energy modeling. His direct project experience includes a range of project types from large multifamily buildings such as 425 Grand Concourse in the Bronx and Sendero Verde in East Harlem, a high rise office in Boston, and a manufacturing facility in Sri Lanka.
